Wonderful Show
Brandon Hall9 August 2002
This was a great show, and if you see any of Bette's other shows, this one was really toned down because it was aired on TV. Bette covers all of the songs from her career until the "Broken Blossom" album. Special guest appearance by Dustin Hoffman who sings the song "Shooting the Breeze" with Bette, music for the song written by Dustin Hoffman and lyrics by Bette Midler. This is a great show and it contains a great version of "Hello in There." Other songs include: Friends, Do You Want to Dance, and Shiver Me Timbers. A must see for any Bette Midler fan. A very wonderful show and a 10 out of 10. Another job well done by Bette Midler.

Bette Midler declares, "The moral standards by which this country lives by have died."

"Primetime TV. Major networks. They said it couldn't be done," Midler quirks. Bette did it, however, and she did it right. From the moment she appeared on the stage, coming out of a giant clam shell and singing "Oklahoma!" with her cast of native dancers, she took control of nearly every television set in America.

Not that anyone was surprised. A performer of Bette's caliber always meets her audiences expectations. The show was simply divine. Very notable for a duet with Dustin Hoffman (The Graduate), "Shoot The Breeze," and an excellent rendition of "Do You Wanna Dance" that shifts into a wild performance of "Higher and Higher" without catching a breath.

For those that seen this when it aired (way before my time...), there is a neat little promotional commercial for her album Broken Blossom.
